Expository Writing and a Little Pigeon

Hello Everyone!!!
Thank you so much for all the sweet messages concerning our sweet little Lola.  You all are the best!
We all continue to grow stronger. Continued thoughts and prayers are appreciated!
In class we have been so busy writing expository text during workshop. We started our unit with writing about what we know best...ourselves. My little writers had so much fun brainstorming, organizing their thoughts, editing, rewriting, and finally publishing!

From there we went on to "How To..." writing. We started that off with  Oreo eating  fun. How do you eat your OREO? We brought these little ideas to publication as well.  Here are a few pics!

These little writers love sharing their work!!

Munch! Munch!!

Kids are experts at so many things!!!

Now on to some other First Grade Fun!  We are finishing up our measurement unit in math, and we are studying the work of Mo Willems, so I decided to integrate the two and have the kids create Pigeon and use him to practice nonstandard units of measurement. I did a kind of directed creating for the pigeon just giving the kids some sized construction paper and telling them what shapes needed to be cut from them. They all turned out so cute. Then they got busy measuring and writing results on speech bubbles!  I love how they turned out!!

Thanks for letting me share these!!! 
Stay tunes for another peek through our "Window on Wonder!"

See you soon!
